enables city bodies and personnel to evade their daoulties under the law and to hide that from public scrutiny. the whistle blower laws are not be used to protect the whistle blower but to protect the target. they are being used to hide the true facts of the investigation and to allow the city agency and employees to evade their actions. they hide the extent and the validity of the investigative process used by the ethics staff and the public records law are always intended to disclose rather than conceal public matters. instead these laws are purposefully misinterpreted to protect the agencies in question but also the ethics staff. as far as you not having a conflict of interest, let's look at the arts commission when they got the report from the civil grand jury that listed what they had done, including spending $300,000 on things that they had no legal authority to do so. charging fees, that they had no legal authority and fire the cultural director and replace the head of the commission. the bottom line is if you were a commission and you were in charge of a staff and a sta

21 andover. there was ample precedents for these events in the city. it was our personal belief that if you could fight or die for the country or vote in an election, you should be able to go to a party. [applause] the folks that we were working with at the police department were hesitant about that. to address their concerns we agreed to very stringent beer gardens, which we did not feel like needed, but we did it in order to produce the event. later, we found out it would not be an 18 and older event. it essentially became a non- negotiable item. if we wanted them to sign off on the permit, with a bar, which was a major revenue stream, we had to be 21 and over. being a promoter and organizer with a long history of doing these events without problems, with a curved track record, that seemed like a perfect result. the police requirement at the event looked like two cops, with no problems with nothing to do, there were five officers at the event now, which we had to pay overtime fees for. trying to discuss this with the officers, public safety is brought up and it is very important to

san francisco for 60 years, if my memory serves me correctly, i was under the impression that the city was trying to limit the issuance of new licenses in regards to liquor, so i was kind of wondering whether that policy is still being followed or as usual, there's always exceptions made depending who you are, so i would like to bring that subject up and i would like to hear the supervisors review that policy to see if it is true that we're trying to limit the new license fees especially in high crime areas, like the merchants know they can't really control or in a certain sense discriminate against the customers they have, so you know, you may have all the greatest intentions in the world but if people come and do whatever they wish near your property then you're kind of at their mercy, though, you know, just another liquor store sounds innocent on its own, but then when you really think about it, does that mean that's another loitering place or it's another place where gang members might accidentally meet and we'll have another shoot-out, thank you. >> and just for the record, this is no
